Arriving from Sardinia on the ferry is stunning... the fortified town with the citadel, the cliffs and the marina . It certainly has a wow factor. We took the noddy train up to the citadel, strolled round, admired the views and then took a leisurely...More

Make the trek up into the castle walls either by foot or train ( I don’t believe the train was running when we were there in late June). Lots of restaurants and shops. There is an elementary school for the locals. There is a promenade...More

The citadel stands high above the marina area and can be accessed by the tourist train or on foot. The ramparts and towers are impressive. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops. Also two tourist information centres.

Bonifacio is very pretty and has some stunning aspects to photograph. Inside the haut ville it is very small and can be walked in a relatively short time. Take the tourist train up to save a pretty tough climb.

Before catching a ferry to Sardinia I took the steep but short walk up to the citadel. (You can also catch a little train for Euro 5 from the area where the sailboats are berthed.) You can easily walk around and take in views of...More

at the town...grand and majestic with a wall that is invisible from the marina. Narrow medieval streets with usual shops, bars and restaurants. More interesting to us was a cliff walk to see the stack, the grain of sand from above. Also interesting was the...More

parts of the city would be but not all and getting up there would be difficult unless they let you drive up with your special sticker.

Not sure if I'm too late, we've just returned from Bonifacio, we were there for 5 days and loved it. We drove to Porto Vecchio, it took approx 50 minutes. It's an easy drive and the roads are good. You can park in one of the... More

You book guides at the tourist office. I don't know how to book in advance. There are several good restaurants (near Aragon's stairway) with views over the sea, but not as many as you would expect. Most restaurants are... More
